Software Architect

United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 3

Currently doing a few different things. Among them: - Cloudformation and infrastructure design on AWS: - Autoscaling, S3, couchbase, node applications, Chef - Javascript Single Page Application design: - React.js, gulp, semantic-ui - Fluid Dynamics/Modelling in Processing: - Side project, not professional. Navier-Stokes, numerical methods, computer graphics, etc. I previously developed provisioning and deployment solutions for a client's in-house automated testing infrastructure. The majority of this was done in Ruby, with some variations dictated by DSLs in Chef and Vagrant, as well as a number of scripting languages, as required. I've also managed a team of 3-5 software engineers working on provisioning automation/DevOps projects. Current Frameworks and JS tools: React.js, backbone.js, gulp.js, bower, browserify, node, etc... More to come shortly. Current Languages: JavaScript, Ruby, Chef, Batch, BASH, Powershell, XML, JSON, AutoIT Current Tools: Chef, Amazon Web Services, Vagrant, Ant, InstallAnywhere, Install4j Current Operating Systems (configuration, software deployment, etc): Windows Server (2003 - 2012) SLES 11 RedHat 6.4 CentOS 6.4 Ubuntu 12.04/14.04 Amazon Linux Past Languages: Processing, C++, Java, OpenGL, Octave, MATLAB, Mathematica, SQL, C, C#, LUA, R, and Python Other: Verilog, VHDL, Oculus Rift, Razer Hydra

Linux sysadmin, cloud deployments specialist

Czech Republic - Last active: 16 hours ago - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 1

I would like to offer you my deep knowledge of servers hardware and software, which allows me to fine-tune servers according to their roles, and my ability to anticipate and solve problems in shortest time possible. No Windows please, Unices only, Linux preferrable. Lately my main point of interest has shifted to deploying and maintaining web projects in cloud environments. I am developing monitoring / management tool ( http://m-script.org ) and supporting existing installations, but I am very well familiar with all well known alternatives from both monitoring and cloud management side, so no problem to implement any of them. The point is, I know very well how it works. And how it doesn't, too :) I am interested in any system administration work, especially in cloud environments. The more challenging you setup is going to be, the better. Automated scalability, cross-clouds deployments, combination of traditional and dynamically scalable resources, DNS/Geo balancing - everything is possible, just let me know your needs.

iOS Developer

Greece - Last active: 06/04/2014 - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 4

I am passionate about solving problems by writing robust software applications for the iOS platform. As an engineer I believe in clean code, written by following best practices. As a private contractor I value professionalism and integrity. Over the past years, I have been working with a wide range of frameworks including Apple's Core Data, Map Kit, Social, Event Kit, Message UI, Accounts, Address Book, Core Graphics, UIKit and 3rd party libraries such as AFNetworking, Parse SDK, StackMob SDK and many more. I really enjoy working with technologies such as Core Data, in a client-server architecture. I also have experience with the Ruby programming language, the Rails framework and the Sinatra DSL, where I can deliver full stack RESTful interfaces for your projects. I am seeking opportunities to build apps for the iPhone and the iPad from the ground up or to improve an existing project.

Web developer

Thailand - Last active: 16 hours ago - Tests: 12 - Portfolio: 10

Lately my work is about integrating Bitcoin-related functionality in websites or developing special purpose apps, like a bitcoin trading bot or a websocket chat. It involved various technologies: node.js, websockets, Ruby, Sinatra framework, Blockchain.info API, PayPal API. During the years of my work prior to this I've performed a big variety of tasks in developing and reworking websites. This involved a lot of programming with PHP+MySQL, layout works with HTML+CSS, Javascript (with and without jQuery), AJAX. I had experience working with various CMSs: OpenCart, Joomla!, Wordpress, MODx Revolution, DataLife Engine, SimplaCMS, self-written websites. Also with different frameworks: MODx, Yii, also self-written MVC structures. I also use regular expressions (RegExp) fluently and have quite some experience with that. I've integrated a number of payment systems in several websites, which included PayPal, Bitcoin (native and via Blockchain.info API) and russian WebMoney, Yandex.Money, QIWI, Robokassa. All payment processors utilize mainly same principles, so it's no problem to learn and integrate something new quickly. My work included creation of web grabbers and parsers that process information from external websites, for example to fill up an online store database. Also setting up and administrating Linux/FreeBSD VPS servers: installation and configuration of Apache, PHP, MySQL, Python and some other uncommon software. Aside from pure web, I've developed Python and Ruby scripts for various services. A part of that was developing Bitcoin-related services, including API communication with bitcoind daemon, automated receiving/sending Bitcoin payments, trading on BTC exchanges via their API, and other stuff. I'm looking for interesting work opportunities that would let me develop my skills and acquire new ones. Cryptocurrencies are especially interesting to me, but if it's not the case, no problem. Most likely I can be useful to solve your programming issues, so feel free to contact me.
